Here is my weekly to do list. After 2 very busy weeks, this week is much less scheduled.
I washed our 5 gallons of sand plums last night. Then today, I simmered them until they released their juice and strained them. I hade one big pot full, one medium pot full and 2 little pans full. It just seemed better to cook them all at once.
I ended with enough juice to make at least 4 batches of jelly. Yum!
I've had already several requests from family members who hope I will share. Of course I will and we may be able to pick more plums in a few days when they have finished ripening.
The downside of all this cooking is the cleanup to do afterward.
The stovetop was a mess but cleaned up without much effort
And my trusty dishwasher washed 3 loads today!
Hope you all had a good Monday!
